Next Year the Capital Gains Exclusion Might Double to $1 Million for Couples!

The More Homes on the Market Act, a bipartisan, NAR-endorsed bill recently introduced in the House of Representatives, would double the capital gains exclusion for sales of principal residences from $250,000 to $500,000 for single filers and from $500,000 to $1 million for married couples – and index these amounts for future inflation.

While the bill is unlikely to move in 2022, it’s a great first step to build on next year when a new Congress convenes.
